Make your own Pot Pourri using flowers grown in your garden.
On a warm day collect rose petals, honeysuckle, lavender, rosemary and any other highly scented flowers that you have in the garden.
Put these petals on a tray and cover with salt. Turn daily until dry - which usually takes about 14 days.
Alternatively you can use a food dehydrator to dry the petals.
Put into jars with 1 ounce of mixed spice, shake well and your Pot Pourri is ready to use
